Overview

The Xone:DB4 is a truly ground-breaking mixer and by far one of the most advanced DJ mixers that Allen & Heath has designed. Every feature has been meticulously researched with a view to offering DJs ultimate creativity.

Based on the iLive pro-touring FX system, Allen & Heath developed FX algorithms with BPM conscious parameters and tight spectral control, customised to perfectly fit the DJ environment. As the loops and FX are automatically synchronised to the tempo of the track, it is very easy to build some amazing grooves and soundscapes without problems of latency, low fidelity and the general hassle often associated with using software and laptops.

The flexible input matrix allows any audio source to be selected on any or all of the channels. Different processing can be applied to the same track on separate channels and you can fade between them, or a phrase sampled in the looper of one channel can be added to the mix later in the track. Allen & Heath's digital design team has done an incredible job to ensure that this is one of the most innovative and exciting DJ mix tools to date.

Quad FX Core
The heart of the Xone:DB4 is the powerful Quad FX Core DSP engine, enabling each channel to have its own FX bank and BPM detection system, which automatically adjusts all time-related FX and loops to the tempo of the music. There are 5 studio quality FX types optimised for DJ use “ delays, reverbs, modulators, resonators and damage “ plus each FX type has a patch library of different effect variations. Each FX bank has a dedicated expression control and a rotary pot to set the wet/dry level, whilst further tweaking can be performed using the global controllers in the FX master section.

Pro-X-Fader Option
Retro-fit Pro-X-Fade option kit for Xone:DB4. Pro-X-Fade uses 100% conductive plastic tracks and a wider stem for extended fader life. Pro-X-Fade also allows the DJ to adjust both the feel of the fader and the cut-in point to suit their personal style. Speak to your approved Allen & Heath dealer or distributor for purchasing and fitting information.

X:LINK
X:LINK uses a standard RJ45 connector and distributes power and data allowing connection to X:LINK compatible devices, saving USB ports on your computer.

Looper
Each channel has a built-in looper, with selectable loop length from 1/16 beat to 4 bars. DB4 will always record the full 4 bars, so the loop can be expanded or shrunk at will.

Filters
DB4 comes equipped with the Xone dual filter system.

Source Select
Each music channel can select any of the available stereo music sources: Analogue Line 1-4 (switchable to Phono on 2-3), Digital 1-4 or USB 1-4.

EQ/Filter
Each music channel has a 3-band EQ that can be configured as standard asymmetric EQ (+6/-26dB), Isolator (+6dB/OFF with a 24dB/octave slope), or reconfigured as a High-Pass/Low-Pass filter system with adjustable resonance. EQ knob pointers change colour to show which type of equalization is active.

Mic/Line Input
The Mic/Line input has 2-band EQ, gain, cue and mix level. This can also be routed to all main input channels overriding Matrix analogue input channel 1 for adding FX and accessing the loopers.

Internal Soundcard
A built-in, high quality (24-bit / 96kHz), multi-channel, fully patchable USB2 soundcard allows replay and recording from audio software for 4 stereo sends and 4 stereo returns.

USB
User-defined settings such as meter mode, BPM range, USB audio routing scheme and display brightness can be saved to a USB key for recall on another DB4.

MIDI Control
All controls (except Mic and Phones level) send MIDI data and the mixer can double up as a MIDI controller via the MIDI shift button, allowing the Loop and FX selection controls to send MIDI data without changing the mixer settings. DB4 can generate internal MIDI clock which can be used to control the tempo of a connected DAW via USB and the ability to change the mixers MIDI channel.

Output Patchbay
Booth, record and phones “ source selectable and level trim. Booth and main “ phase and level trim controls.

High-Visibility Display
The OLED display is clearly visible, even in bright sunlight, and displays channel FX selection and current BPM, as well as being an easy interface for the Menu setup functions.

Lightweight Chassis
DB4' lightweight aluminium chassis is designed to make touring with the console easy.

Best Uses

    Comments about Allen & Heath XONE:DB4 4-Channel Digital DJ Mixer with Effects:

    For years now, I've been producing on a Focusrite 18i20 audio-interface. Being a software guy, I was of the opinion it could all be done in Ableton. And, yah, it can be, theoretically, but there is an efficiency in being able to send anything to any channel...it makes for rapid layering/leveling of truly incredible-sounding FX, all in real-time, with the speed of a traditional mixer...my sound has immediately leveled up.

    The routing on this thing is 100%. There is not yet a combination of send/return that I've not been able to accomplish. I'm able to send any input to any (or all) 4 channels, and then return any of those channels pre-fx, post-fx, as-a-mix to Ableton.

    Unfortunately, though, it's not all roses - and this is why 4 stars as opposed to 5: Allen & Heath contracted a company called Ploytec to build the audio-interface on this device. Reason I know is because getting this thing running on my MacBook OSX Yosemite was a nightmare. The DB4 has its own firmware, which can be updated via USB-stick. But then this Ploytec audio-interface has its own, different firmware that needs to be updated. Then, of course, you still need the actual OSX driver.

    Now, being a spoiled Mac user who has not had to install a single driver for any of my USB hardware, coming to this realization was not immediate. I had to backtrack, uninstall, carefully read all of installation steps, download multiple versions of the drivers, read all the PDFs, and scour the forums...even still, the Ploytec firmware installer would not detect the DB4.

    Finally, I gave up on my computer and used my girlfriend's. Here, the Ploytec firmware completed but said it was unsuccessful - which left her computer no longer able to recognize the device. WTH.

    Luckily, when I tried again on my computer, it now recognized the USB device, even though it wasn't communicating. I was able to finally install the Ploytec firmware successfully, and WAH-LAH....the fun began.

    Overall, no regrets - it's an amazing deck!
